The FBI is offering a reward of up to $10,000 for information leading to the arrest and conviction of Kamau Kambui Leland Curnal, age 28. In October 2016, a federal grand jury in Oregon charged Curnal with one count of sex trafficking of a child and one count of transportation of a minor for the purposes of prostitution. The indictment alleges that Curnal and a second man, Aaron Barnes, drove a minor victim from Portland to Seattle as part of a trafficking operation. The FBI arrested Barnes in November 2016 in Lincoln, Nebraska, and his case is currently pending further court action. 

Although the charges stem from alleged criminal activity in Oregon, Curnal is believed to have extensive ties to Seattle and may be living in that area.

A total of 1,018 individuals are running for school board positions next Tuesday in Oregon -- the highest number since 2009 -- according to a survey conducted by the Oregon School Boards Association. The upswing in candidates marks a complete reversal from May 2015, when 817 people ran for school board. That was the lowest such total in a decade.
